In brief:

* Mountains 101 – University of Alberta [Coursera]
Mountains 101­­ is a broad and integrated overview of the mountain world. This 12-lesson course covers an interdisciplinary field of study focusing on the physical, biological, and human dimensions of mountain places in Alberta, Canada, and around the world. Specifically, we’ll study the geological origins of mountains, how they’re built-up and worn-down over time; we’ll learn about their importance for biodiversity and water cycles, globally and locally; we’ll explore their cultural significance to societies around the globe, and how that relationship has evolved over time; and we’ll learn how mountains are used, how they’re protected, and how today they’re experiencing rapid change in a warming climate.
I didn’t even manage to start the Q1-2017 course, lets see if I have any more luck with the Q2 course.

* If you want to give your children more freedom, try free-range parenting (2017-Mar-23) [The Globe and Mai]

❝Rather than comforting Kasper by saying, “Don’t be scared,” they stoke him with, “Let’s be brave.” The first reminds kids of their fears. The second reminds them to prepare.❞




Some reading/listening:
